New World, New Problems
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Meeting new people is hard. It can be hard to figure out what to say, how to get a conversation started, or how to keep a conversation going. There are always those icebreaker routines where you are supposed to describe what you did on vacation or what the ... (Read More)

Expert Opinion
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector When you are a librarian, everyone wants you to be on their team for Trivial Pursuit. “You know all the answers,” they say. “No,” a fellow librarian once said, “I know how to find all the answers.” That conversation is the intersection of our understanding of the difference between ...

It's a Wonderful Life
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector During some recent travels, we stayed with dear friends with two little children, each almost exactly three years younger than one of our children.

A Privileged Life
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector We like the new place, it turns out. First of all, most houses built in the 1970s were built by people who had lived in houses from the 1920s, so you don’t even have to get out of your chair to find an outlet. There’s none of this ... (Read More)

Homeward Bound
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

What I Did on My Summer Vacation: A Tale of Engine Lathes and Tadpoles
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector What would summer camp for adults be like?

by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector At the risk of repeating ourselves, selling antiques is hard work.
